Fractionation of serum proteins by agar electrophoresis has been done in 20 normal controls and 33 patients of pulmonary tuberculosis prior to treatment with anti-tuberculosis drugs. The results clearly demonstrate that there are definite changes in serum proteins from normal values in tuberculosis. A significant fall in total proteins, beta and gamma globulins and a rise in alpha-2 globulin has been consistently observed. Albumin/alpha-2 globulin ratio in advanced cases has been found to be significantly lower than that of early cases.
